Gaming Performance Comparison

In terms of overall gaming performance, the graphical capabilities of the AMD Radeon HD 8510G are noticeably better than the Nvidia GeForce 610M 2GB.

The GeForce 610M 2GB has a 400 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8510G, but the Radeon HD 8510G has 8 more Texture Mapping Units than the GeForce 610M 2GB. As a result, the Radeon HD 8510G exhibits a 0.4 GTexel/s better Texture Fill Rate than the GeForce 610M 2GB. This still holds weight but shader performance is generally more relevant, particularly since both of these GPUs support at least DirectX 10.

The GeForce 610M 2GB has a 400 MHz higher core clock speed than the Radeon HD 8510G and the same number of Render Output Units. This results in the GeForce 610M 2GB providing 3.2 GPixel/s better pixeling performance. However, both GPUs support DirectX 9 or above, and pixeling performance is only really relevant when comparing older cards.

The Radeon HD 8510G was released over a year more recently than the GeForce 610M 2GB, and so the Radeon HD 8510G is likely to have better driver support, meaning it will be more optimized for running the latest games.

The GeForce 610M 2GB has 2048 MB video memory, but the Radeon HD 8510G does not have an entry, so the two GPUs cannot be reliably compared in this area.

The Radeon HD 8510G has 384 Shader Processing Units and the GeForce 610M 2GB has 48. However, the actual shader performance of the Radeon HD 8510G is 213 and the actual shader performance of the GeForce 610M 2GB is 82. The Radeon HD 8510G having 131 better shader performance is not particularly notable, as altogether the GeForce 610M 2GB performs better when taking into account other relevant data.

The Radeon HD 8510G transistor size technology is 8 nm (nanometers) smaller than the GeForce 610M 2GB. This means that the Radeon HD 8510G is expected to run very slightly cooler and achieve higher clock frequencies than the GeForce 610M 2GB. As they exhibit similar graphical performance, the Radeon HD 8510G should consume less power than the GeForce 610M 2GB.

The GeForce 610M 2GB requires 12 Watts to run but there is no entry for the Radeon HD 8510G.

GPU Mini Review

Mini ReviewRadeon HD 8510G is featured in some ULV APUs.
Not much is known about it at the moment but it's performance is close to Radeon HD 7660G, according to AMD.
GeForce 610M 2GB is an entry-level mobile GFX based on the 40nm Fermi GF119 Core.
It offers 48 Shader Processing Units, 8 TMUs and 4 ROPs on a 64-bit memory interface of 2GB DDR3 (which is a gimmick since this GFX does not benefit from a 2GB frame buffer). The central clock speed will range from less than 500MHz to up to 850MHz and will be defined by the laptop manufacturer and even the memory clock can be clocked up to 900MHz. Expect a power consumption of up to 12 Watts though underclocked versions will consumes less energy.
Its performance will depend largely on the clock frequencies each version has and this GPU's rank is based on the highest clock version. Still, overall, expect modern demanding games to be only playable at the lowest settings.
